Stern TOPs tournament configuration

Does anyone know if you can run a TOPs tournament when the game is set on Free Play? I’ve messed around with the settings and can’t seem to get it to work.

I’m trying to set the tournament play for 50 cents, and of course, the game is on Free Play.


Can’t do it on free play. 25 cents per play with two credits for tournament play will do it. Not sure if you can do 25/50 cents per play and set tournament play to one credit, but it can’t be on free play.

The tournaments are timed, so you can run one just for a few hours, then put it back to free play.

I just sent Stern a software suggestion for that.

It would be nice if free play locations like mine could run one.

How do you plan to collect the money for the TOPs tournament?

Oh I guess you’re wanting to have people pay to play in the TOPs but if they don’t want to pay the 50 cents for that, it’s free?

Correct. So a place that has games on free play can still have the option to run the TOPs separately
